I used to watch cops all of the time! Not sure if it was LA or not but it was something I liked to watch. I'm sorry about your Dad and the cops. No child should ever have to go through that and it's a sad world.
People go on living their lives not caring what's happening around them and others have to face life full of racism, abuse even in their own home and some families are very poor or homeless and don't know when or how they're going to get their next meal, and so much more. I guess we shouldn't focus on everything bad happening in the world but we shouldn't overlook it. If we have the opportunity to help someone then we should and it sickens me when people think it's funny to joke about real world problems that people are having to deal with.
Forgive me for the mini rant, but I am so grateful to have a roof over my head and a family that loves me when some people don't have either.
